Drag Strip Construction Update - January 2012

2011 was a very productive year for the CAR Drag Strip, thanks to the hard work of many individuals the drag strip base work has been completed.  The drag strip elevations are above engineer design and significant work has been completed to expand and enhance the drainage to the entire facility.  In the spring we'll all have our fingers crossed as the snow melts confirming correct water run-off grades.  Afterwards the final seal can be put on the base work as the committee engages local companies to provide the finish paving and concrete work!  If all goes according to plan we should be having our annual shoot-outs on the 1/4 mile drag strip in July. 

Many thanks goes out to everyone involved in the design and construction of our 1/4 mile drag strip.

Drag Strip Construction Update - June 2011

The team has been putting in some long hours particularly the past couple of weeks to get the drag strip up to grade in preparation of laying pavement this summer.  Currently the two drag lanes are up to engineering specified grades, just some minor feathering required to blend everything together remains, than it should almost be ready for gravel once the engineers sign-off on the work done to date.  The team is now just beginning work on the return road followed by the staging and pit areas.

Many thanks goes out to everyone involved in the design and construction of our 1/4 mile drag strip.
